The Telstra Business Awards is always a bunch of fun mingling with people who share similar experiences day to day, listening to people talk about what they are passionate about and most of all – inspiring one another to achieve greater things, and push through the crazy world that is entrepreneurship!
The greatest thing about the awards is creating a network of friends in business. It can be a lonely world owning a business – the struggles of growing pains and trying to push your business further can consume you. It’s not like your average 9-5 job. When you own a business you literally live and breathe it – there’s no escape… but in all honesty if you’re passionate about it, and love what you do it becomes an addiction!
We are addicted to growing Francesca into something that is beyond a retail store. We want to inspire other young entrepreneurs to make their dreams a reality- inviting our followers on our exciting journey. We live in a time that invites consumers into businesses, through the forever-expanding world of social media. Having a platform to interact with our Francesca followers is one of the most exciting concepts in business- we love the fact that we can ask peoples opinions, see what they like, and along the way if we inspire them somehow we are achieving our goals!
